I would very much appreciate a date on this cabinet card photo of a slightly worried looking young man.

The address is 11 Pearson's Terrace. I know that John Gloag and family were at 5, Pearson's Terrace in 1891. He died at number 11 in October 1900. In 1901 his wife was still at number 11, occupation 'photographer'.

So I am wondering if this is a photo he took before his death in 1900, or whether it might be one taken by his wife post 1900, using his old cardstock?

Any help gratefully received  :)

I recently acquired these three lovely cabinet cards. They all appear to have been removed from a photo album, judging by the similar slight damage at the top of each.
I think the first two are mid 1890's - am I correct, please? I'm not certain about the third.
The backs are identical, so have only posted one example of this.
I have one other card on an identical cardstock, and this was dated to early 1890's.

As usual, any guidance appreciated  :)

I would like to have a date for this nice CdV please.
I am thinking perhaps early 1870's?
Thanks for any help  :)

I would appreciate a date for this CdV please.

Given that she is displaying a bustle, and that the CdV has square rather than rounded corners my very inexpert thought is that this is early 1870's.

Am I correct, please?

Please can I have a date on this CdV?

I know that Allan Ramsden started his career as a photographer in and around Barnard Castle in the late 1860's. So given that fact, and that this CdV has squared corners I am thinking late 1860's - early 1870's?

Please can one of the resident experts confirm (or not)?

Please can the experts give me a date on this CdV?

I have two on the same cardstock, which have been dated to late 1860's/early 1870's.

Is this one of a similar date, please?

Thanks for any help.

I would appreciate a date for this CdV by Allan Ramsden (see )

I know that Allan Ramsden began his long photographic career in Barnard Castle in the late 1860's and I wondered if this might date from about that time?

There appears to be some greenery on the table for the rabbit to munch on  :-\

Am I right in thinking that I can see the feet of a 'posing stand' behind the little boy?

Thanks for any help you can give  :)

I'd appreciate an date on this CdV please. It's yet another by Allan Ramsden see

I have three other CdV's on this cardstock and these have all been dated at early 1870's.

Any advice on this one please?  :)

This is another CdV by Hexham photographer John Pattison Gibson.

Sadly, in common with several other from the same batch, it has been trimmed down.however I think the top left corner, which is square, might be original.

I have two other CdV's on this particular cardstock, both of which were dated to early 1870's.

I have included a close up scan to display the gentleman's lavish side whiskers and beautifully polished boots.

Am I right to think it's early 1870's?

Any help and advice welcome, please.
